I'm flaring quite badly and i'm also having bad nausea, headaches,loss of appetite and aching in my bones and backs of legs to name a few. I was just wondering what other symptoms you guys experience on top of the bowel issues.

I feel pretty worn out, and relish naps. I've even gone out to my car during the work day to catch a few winks. I wish I lost my appetite, that would make it easier but it seems nothing ever makes me lose appetite.
So I eat and pay.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.
Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, then Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.

terrible nausea, body aches, wanting to take long naps daily, and I have a hearty appetite, but during a bad flare, it crashes to almost nothing.
Hope you feel better soon.

Just flared up again today. Nausea, fever, extreme fatigue, headache, stomach pain so bad I have to go into the fetal position. I will be popping in percoset in a few and bumping up again the pred.

UC since age 22, now 27.  Several huge flares since then.  3/4 colon diseased. 
Currently tapering prednisone(10 mg from 80 mg).  Also just starting 6mp again(75 mg) and lialda.   I definately am not liking these drugs.  Maybe surgery one day?

Hi Folks,

I have some friends and relatives in different states who I have been in contact with lately. It seems that there is a nasty stomach bug going around the country that lasts for approx 6 days or so. Might that be hitting in your area? There's a lot of it out there. It also includes the aching muscles, fever, strong stomach pain, nausea, runs and all the rest. Hope you feel better soon.
